Case of the Week 4/6/07

Client's Age: 65
County: Taylor

Client and her now-deceased husband had put their home in their daughter's name to protect it for client from her husband's son from a former marriage. Now she is having disputes with her daughter and wants to put the house back in her own name. We explained that once the deed was made to the daughter, the property became daughter's (subject to the life estate client retained). Client cannot force daughter to give it back, though we explained client has the exclusive right of possession of the property during her lifetime.
